That's a good discount coupon, somebody better take it. I ordered the AWE off FASTMODZ and got a 10% off code for military/veterans so that was the push I needed.

Well, after weeks of countless hours watching every exhaust video on the internet, I finally bit the bullet and ordered the AWE 0FG for my 2021 Laramie. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to spend that much again on another exhaust and even considered the B2 Fab with resonator deletes, I just didn't want to risk spending half as much and being disappointed. Plus I didn't want to deal with drone. I'll will provide some detailed updates and reviews once I receive it and get it installed.

Although I have the white with the midnight package, I ordered chrome tips because I feel like the black just gets lost underneath and you can't really see the beauty of this system.
I don't think you will be disappointed

Alright folks, the AWE 0FG system is installed. Shoutout to fastmodz.com for excellent price and free 2 day shipping.

First thing's first...ZERO DRONE, at any speed. Can't even tell the difference when MDS kicks in. I don't disable mine like most others do because I never heard it. You get a slight growl when the truck starts back up from the auto start/stop.
Cabin noise is next to non-existent besides flooring it. I also don't have a front midpipe resonator before the muffler.

Fitment: Spot on, with more smaller pipe sections it did make for better fitment, especially coming from the Borla ATAK (that was a PITA). Install was a little more difficult than I had planned, but still not bad at all. With this system having a Y-pipe, it was a little tight under the bed and was a little close to a wiring that it asks you to wire tie down. I had a head shield wrap from my Borla ATAK still installed there so I just readjusted that.

Unless your stomping on it, it's relatively quiet. Cold starts are on the louder side but nowhere near the ATAK and it calms down pretty quick. Going through neighborhoods and cycling through the lower gears is not an issue.

Overall, this is an amazing system, nice quality parts, and excellent fitment. You even get a charms blowpop (got my favorite flavor - grape). If you want a nice sounding Catback system that is not obnoxious, loud when you want, zero drone, relative no cabin noise, this is the system for you. Price is comparable to every other system, with coupons/promo codes, and the two tailpipes with a smaller section for more adjustability for the tips makes it perfect. I also got the chrome tips instead of the black chrome because I think the black tips get lost underneath and don't get that excitement of seeing an aftermarket system...and it was a little bit cheaper.

Long winded, I know but there aren't many reviews on this system and with exhaust being so subject, I wanted to hit on all the major points we all tend to look at.

This makes me want to ditch borla touring for this. If I could get a coupon code, I'd probably switch.

If you are military/veteran, they have a code. I couldn't find any codes elsewhere and fastmodz was the only one that would apply the code to this system. I'm not sure how the touring sounds so I couldn't tell ya if it's worth the switch.

I'm am not a vet so that won't apply for me. Touring sounds pretty good. Definitely pretty loud on startup and can hear slight rumble at cruising speed. Pretty loud when you stomp the pedal. You can also tell when MDS kicks in with a tone change, but I always deactivate it with the gear selector. I'm just not happy with the fitment. Waiting on a warranty replacement that should be here end of the month.

I'm actually quite pleased with my AWE but I have a little more update regarding the AWE after having it for a few weeks. I can clearly hear when my MDS kicks in. It's a really deep rumble that is surprisingly loud and resonates throughout the cab more than I would like. The MDS is actually deeper and louder than my Borla Pro XS and Flowmaster Super 10 I had on it with the rear resonators removed. This said, I did get a tonneau cover right at the same time of installing the AWE and I'm not sure if that might be amplifying the deeper rumbling... I might try driving around without the cover and see if that reduces the bass'yness of the MDS.

The second thing I've recently noticed is what I've read someone else post on this thread. I also get a drone hum around 1,700-1,900 rpm cruising speeds. It is not overly annoying but it is the upper frequency (not a deep "rattle your head off" drone. More like a constant hum). I would say it is pretty faint but it is there. The only thing I can think of is that I have a 3.92 rear but my truck does have the front mid-pipe resonator so I don't know. I also might dig around on the heat shields and see if anything might be vibrating or anything.

Again, very pleased with the AWE but to be truly fair and honest, it does have a touch of drone in my personal case.

The location of the muffler is causing the truck bed to vibrate and go into the back wall of the cab. The back wall inside the cab has vents that allows sound to easily come through. You could try some sound dampening material as I’m having a similar issue to you. At this point my neighbors bedroom window is right where I park my truck so I may try installing a vibrant ultra quiet resonator to help with the cold starts. I too have 3.92 gears and tonneau cover. I’ve driven without the cover and haven’t noticed any difference. I think it just boils down to the loudness of the exhaust vibrating into the cab.

hmm... I just read something about ANC issues? Which, actually, sounds like my issue. I haven't tried the trick of rolling down the windows when it is making the sounds to see if the ANC might be the cause.
